Anyone know of one? The one sold on their website is kind of pricey and says "not reccomended for airline use." For $175 safe for airline use is something I'd want.

I have Alien Bee heads and I purchased a Vanguard case. Much cheaper than Pelican, and for the amount I travel, seemed to make sense.

I purchased the 300W, and I'm able to put 3 heads plus sync and power cords in it. I couldn't get the reflectors don't fit, but I usually don't travel with them.

Any opinion on which might work if I wanted two cases to hold two lights each with reflectors?

How much was the 300W?

With only 2 heads in the case, you might be able to fit the reflectors in. I purchased mine on Ebay for around $40-$45

Wow that's cheap. Thanks for the info. Did you have to buy anything else special to pad the lights and hold them securely inside the case so they don't bang around??
